Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret

Author: Judy Bloom
What To Read Next: Forever by Judy Bloom, Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty

Judy Blume's novel Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret has one confused main character. Not only does Margaret have to deal with puberty, buying a bra, and figuring out how to use belted sanitary napkins (google it—you'll feel bad for your grandma), she also has to deal with her religious identity.

Margaret was born to a Christian mom and a Jewish dad, and her grandparents want her to pick one religion. That's really hard to do when you don't even know what's up with the body God gave you. Judy Bloom, in case you didn't know, just gets it.
